dont expect astro creep - 60%

peter_schtudt, May 8th, 2007

I think many people will listen to the pre-Geffen White Zombie expecting to hear the same kind of disco influenced groove thrash as can be found on la sexorcisto and astro creep. If that's what you expect you'll be dissappointed.

The eighties version of White Zombie is quite different. At this time the band was not trying to make the same style of music. This record, and really everything up to God of Thunder, is far more new-wave and no-wave influenced punk. The main inspirations behind this stuff seem to be bands like Nick Cave's Birthday Party and The Cramps. If you like those bands, then this release is definitely worth checking out, even if you just want to hear where Rob Zombie started his career.
